As long as you know what the teachers are actually teaching, social, sexual...lot's of Public schools are controlled by a corrupt Teachers Union, imo, and have an agenda that you may or may not agree with.
If I had children, they would be in private schools.
That's just me though. I don't trust goverment schools. Something's should be taught by parent's. Trouble is, in public schools, there are lot of folks who don't care and the education is dumbed down and (ahem) politically motivated.

i couldn't agree more my friend. right now, with my finances, being divorced and all, the private school education just isn't in the cards. I went to private schools and that is what i wanted for my kids. Hopefully by highschool i can swing it.

Totally agree with the teacher union thing - even though a couple of my family members are firmly entrenched within. your point is more than well taken in my mind. Don't know if you know much about our massachusetts MCASS tests, but they are total bullshit, and the teachers dumb down to them and totally stifle any form of creativity in thinking within the classroom. A total joke. No wonder the Asians (not disparaging at all) are way way ahead of us in education.
